Spectra of the elements

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Steven F. Watkins (Faculty), Mar 06, 2001
Comment: 1. & 4. I spent a few minutes trying different elements. It's easy to use and
self-explanatory (if you understand the idea of atomic spectra). I especially
like having both emission and absorption.
2. This is an ideal supplement to any presentation of atomic spectra. I would
discourage additional text with this application that tries to explain the
subject; leave that up to individual instructors.
3. I intend to use this the next time I present atomic spectra in my class
intro-chem. I hope it will be effective. I may also use in in advanced

Technical Remarks:

This application works well with Internet Explorer, but poorly or not at all
with Netscape v4.72 (on my Mac). Is that because the JAVA has some quirks in it
that Netscape cannot understand? Maybe the author could look into that and
produce a Netscape-friendly version.
